In The Process of Research in Psychology: Second Edition, an introductory textbook, Dawn M. McBride utilizes numerous examples from published research and the pedagogical approach of spaced repetition to provide a step-by-step explanation of how to design, conduct, and present a research study in psychology. Early chapters introduce important concepts for developing research ideas, subject sampling, ethics, and data collection to help students understand the process of research. Subsequent "Nuts and Bolts" chapters provide more detailed coverage of these topics and examine the various types of research relevant to the field of psychology. This approach creates a logical scaffolding upon which students can build their knowledge and allows for an easy-to-read, concise format that provides students with the appropriate information required to do research in psychology!
